If your property is in the middle of a drought or the middle of a hurricane, the most secure place to find a refuge during a storm is underground. There are several different types of shelters for storms, ranging from small residential shelters to large, super school-sized emergency shelters. The best part is that these types of shelters are not expensive, meaning you'll save money.
Shelters below ground are much simpler to construct than above-ground storm shelters. They are simply lowered into the hole and backfilled with concrete. If the weather is bad enough the lid is put on, and the Shelter is bolted to the concrete slab. They are safer than shelters above the ground because they're built beneath the ground. You won't have to be concerned about the roof getting wet or uncomfortable, damp conditions.
In addition to above-ground storm shelters there are also underground shelters that you can put in your garage. This type of shelter is similar to underground storm shelters, minus that it's located under the garage. The only difference between above-ground shelters and other underground shelters is that they are constructed from high-quality steel. They also must meet local codes and FEMA requirements. It is the best way to protect your home. However it is recommended you hire a professional to assist you with obtaining permits and build your storm shelter.
